Wood County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services employees were recently given a 1.5 percent salary increase.
The raises, which are retroactive to July 1, reflect a $6,281 increase in staff salaries annually, according to Tom Clemons, executive director of the ADAMHS board.
Clemons said the board decided to follow the Wood County Board of County Commissioners' staff compensation plan for this year.
"As the board does not have an alternative system for determining pay increases, it has kept pace with the county's actions for several years," Clemons said.
In addition to the raises, staff hired prior to January 2013 received a one-time lump sum payment of $1,500.
The board employs six staff members.
Clemons said the board has "significantly reduced" its salary costs over the past 13 to 14 months.
